Nia Jax’s entry into the Men’s Royal Rumble was one of the most talked about parts of the show. Similar to Chyna and Beth Phoenix in the past, Jax entered the Men’s Rumble to take on some of her male counterparts before taking an RKO from Randy Orton and being eliminated.
On her way to the ring, Jax took out R-Truth and apparently there was heat on her for legitimately hurting him.
Jerry “The King” Lawler was backstage and witnessed Truth looking very upset.
“This got real heat for real,” Lawler said on his podcast. “She blasted poor R-Truth and knocked him face first in that wall. He was hot, for real hot. They were having to hold him back.”
This incident and the punch to Becky Lynch back in November aren’t the only times when she’s gotten legit heat. We’re told that there have been other times where she’s been stiffed and gotten people upset with her. Hopefully, these incidents decrease before someone gets seriously injured.
As you can see below, Truth calmed down enough to do a backstage interview later in the night for WWE.com:
